We’re evaluating the option to buy some kitchen appliances (fridge, dishwash, backhofen kockfeld) in Italy, where the prices are almost half of the ones here in CH.
I understood that for the oven and hob, in switzerland the standard is 380-400v
Our apartment has 25 A restriction, meaning that an hob of 220-240v and 7.2KW, results into 31A, where the appliance with 380-400v and 7.6.KW, results in 11 A.
So my quesiton here: is it possible to install the “italian-purchased” appliance to the 400v? Does it require adjustments on the electric plan or the electrician can perform that without big work?
Hi 314rch, thanks for you feedback. Warranty, I am aware of potential limitation/restriction. But I wonder if it’s possible to get this appliance installed. The electrician (the one provided by the Architects of the new building), says that the specific of our selected hob are too high and we cannot install it as is will absorve 31A (where he explained our apartment has a limit of 25A)
Hi newhere, thanks for sharing your experience. We will buy the entire kitchen in italy, therefore I guess the sizes should not matter in my case - except if we need to buy CH appliances, which would fit generously. In that case (I hope not), when selecting the appliance I need to pay attention and select the 60cm one, correct?
About the fact you installed a 230V. So that’s possible? What the eleectrician has to do for having this separate line? I’m struggling to understand why my elecrtician does not provide me a solution, but rather ask me to select a 400v
Don’t know how set you are on that, but out of personal experience I would never have an integrated extractor anymore.
Looks nice in the beginning, but just such a hassle to clean as soon as you do some more serious cooking (projections, cut stuff which are missing the pan while sliding it in from the board etc.). Same like a gas stove, just to many corners to clean. A full flat surface just makes your life so much easier. Just my 2 cents.
